A large tree fell down across North Sea Road in Southampton at 11:40 a.m. on Thursday, blocking vehicular access to all lanes and impacting utility wires.

The fallen tree is located on the road between Marys Lane and Millstone Brook Road.

Southampton Town Police responded to the scene and said at 1:45 p.m. that they are waiting for PSEG Long Island to arrive and shut off the power so that the tree can be removed.

The town's highway department also arrived to the scene. There is no estimated time that the road will reopen, as it depends when PSEG can turn off the electricity, according to police.

Why was the town highway department sent to remove a tree on a county road? Is Gregor trying to get votes that bad he is willing to break NYS Highway law? Taxpayers living on private roads are told sorry it's not a town road fix it yourself, but first photo opportunity and magically they show up. What a sham!!!!

It’s been a town road for a few years. The town board took it over from the county. Alex objected.

It is County. But the tree fell pretty much in front of the old highway barn. Maybe all their equipment is still stored there and it was just more practical? 2 hours for Town police to respond to the scene? Since it's a county road shouldn't the troopers have been there? You could have had volunteer locals there with their chainsaws and the tree would've been fire place logs before the cops ever got there.

Is the story here that Alex Gregor actually answered the phone and came to help? Because that sounds like big news for the least valuable public servant in the Town.
